Re: Where does Iron Man 2 stand among other superhero sequels?
They pulled their dramatic punches (again) when they should have hit much harder than the first one. They dealt with some meatier elements (he was dying, a crazy revenge plot) but they didn't let themselves or us delve into it. Thus, they pulled their punches.
What annoys me as a filmmaker is, they have fantastic actors with lots of range at your disposal, why aren't they using them?!
